Weston Vacuum Sealer Replacement Parts
Weston Vacuum Sealers are known to be sturdy appliances, but they will require replacement of the Teflon Seals at times. Sometimes the heating element fails.The Weston brand maintenance kits are quite expensive, but there are other substitute kits which are quite effective, if you dont insist on OEM parts. Here is a list of replacement parts for the Weston Pro Vacuum Sealers
The Weston Pro 2100 and 2300 Vacuum Sealers are heavy duty sealers which are known to be more rugged, quieter and faster than other vacuum sealers. The sealing strip is larger, the sealer can seal larger bags with lesser wastage and the Weston bags are also cheaper than other brands.

Instead of buying the readymade teflon seals, you can also cut your own seals if you have rolls of Teflon tape or PTFE tape.Measure the length of each seal and cut same length from your PTFE roll.Make sure that what you have is a High Temperature PTFE Teflon Adhesive Tape.Unlike ordinary teflon tape used for plumbing, these tapes can withstand high temperature.After removing the old tape, it is a good idea to clean the surface using something like Goo Gone before applying the new seal.
